CODE OF ETHICS
IS HELPING END EXTREME POVERTY THROUGH
MICRO - FINANCE

Code Of Ethics Jacksonville, FL … June 1, 2008 … Christian Rock band - Code of Ethics is helping end extreme poverty through micro-finance by partnership with The Reckoning International.

“We believe that solving the problems of chronic poverty and underdevelopment in the world are major long-term keys to peace and safety in our world and with a deep belief that God loves every human being and has given each of us gifts and talents to be discovered and used with excellence,” says COE founder and front man Barry Blaze. “People struggling with poverty and underdevelopment are not objects of charity; they are valuable partners for transforming the world. It is this motivation that is taking them to countries like Ukraine, Columbia, Kenya, Dominican Republic and Nepal, where recently through the funding from The Reckoning, the freedom of indentured Tharu slaves was purchased. They were given each a tract of land for farming, and money was also raised to purchase water buffaloes for these families to use in Farming and milking. And now, with the ability to prosper and be self-supporting, this same generosity will be provided by them to other individuals within their own communities and country along with the Love of God.”

Blaze added, “Chronic poverty and underdevelopment is like quicksand to generations of people whose only goal is to survive. Charity does not help forever. What they really need is a chance - a working chance. We look forward to working with TRI here and all over the world.
